6 Things Khia Should Be Doing With Her Time

Looks like Miss “My Neck, My Back” Khia is back at it again. This time she brings the cameras while she vlogs about her opinions on different celebrities in the industry. In this NSFW video Khia goes off about everyone ingeniously from the letters A through Z; from Debra Lee over at BET to Beyoncé and back to Miss Diamond Princess Trina, Khia spares nobody in her hilarious vlog.

Since entering into the game, Khia has been associated with being brash, bold and unapologetic. But before you judge her (even more), please do not think all her commentary is negative. The self-dubbed "Motor Mouf" TV spokeswoman does offer a few compliments sprinkled within.

We already know that Khia is good with her punchy one-liners and witty imagery; however, there are many things she should be doing besides making blog posts and vlogs attacking people. Like for instance:

  1. Find you a production company to work for. Looks like you don’t mind jumping in front of the camera. Your name alone will drive traffic. Take this talent to a bigger platform outside of your mediocre blog. For example, the BET Hip Hop Awards are coming up soon, see if you can guest host.
  2. If you’re going to continue making videos on YouTube, please keep them to a minimal time length. Nobody has 51 minutes to sit in front of the computer screen listening to you rant- the news isn’t even that long. And if you’re sticking with sitcom length videos, throw some commercials in it. Find some endorsements. I’m sure Black & Mild cigars, Taaka Vodka and Media Take Out would be fitting for your demographic. Promotions people! Promotions.
  3. Get back into the studio and create a solid album we can remember. No matter what they say, we were all bumping “My Neck, My Back” almost ten years ago. People actually slept on your debut CD. I didn’t though. I loved it and even had a few songs I favored. Since then you’ve came out with others but I can’t even remember one song from them but “Snatch The Cat Back.” Give us some music. Stop wasting time; only so many things you can rap about after 30.
  4. Come out and be a mentor to the new girls. Even though your album sales are pivotal, your talent still cannot be denied. Grab a hold to an upcoming female rap artist and give her a few tricks. Like Notorious B.I.G. did for Lil’ Kim, give someone your rap book filled with rhymes. Appears you have plenty of free time to write. Which leads me to…
  5. Leave Trina alone! You can continue coming for her but her work is consistent. She’s probably the only female rapper who can say she has successful albums under her belt. Squash the beef and reach out. I heard Trina’s nice. A feature with you two would really help put Florida back on the map. Slip & slide…
  6. Give us a remix or cover to “My Neck, My Back.” Stay away from PayPal and throw it on iTunes. If you get on iTunes, it will expand your audience reach and hopefully gain you some new listeners. Maybe you could get Lil’ Wayne or Drake or Kelly Rowland.

Hopefully, these tips will make Khia more focused and productive.

I would be wrong if I didn’t admit that I still believe in Khia. She is definitely talented enough to make it on her own without constantly shading others though. Even though she’s received backlash from criticizing some of our favorite working artists, she has the right to say whatever she feels. Putting popularity aside, nobody is above from criticism.

Kelly Rowland Says Her Highly-Anticipated Project Is "Definitely Coming"

Six years ago, Kelly Rowland released her fourth studio album titled Talk a Good Game. The project boasted hit singles like "Kisses Down Low" and the transparent "Dirty Laundry." Now, the Houston native is preparing to release a project that'll surely satisfy fans' patient earbuds.

In an interview with Billboard, Rowland shared her hopes for putting out a new body of work and the pressure that she's encountered since she's been in the studio. "This is by far the longest, most pressure-filled process ever, only because I know what it's supposed to be and I have been so hard on myself. I know it," she said. "And it's the first time I've said it out loud. I've been extremely hard on myself. But it's definitely coming, and I'm more so excited about this project than anything else."

The news follows the recent release of Rowland's "Kelly" track, which was met with critical acclaim in November 2018. In addition to preparing the release of new music, the "Motivation" singer discussed fans' wish for a Destiny's Child reunion. The rumors have been fueled by social media photographs of Rowland with either Beyonce or Michelle or all three, especially during Beyonce's past Coachella performance. But Rowland assures readers that it's not what they think.

"It's so funny. I guess every time people see us together, they just see music but I see sisterhood, and that's what we are and that's what me, her, Michelle [Williams] and Solange and I are. People see us all together, they immediately think music. I'm like, no. Just family." As Rowland previously mentioned Solange, she hopes to one day work with her again.

"I'm a huge fan," she said. "I love her writing and how detailed and particular she is. I always wanted to figure out how the heck she has so many different layers of harmonies when she is constructing these vocals, and it's so complex but simple. It's genius. It's the genius in her genius mind that she has in there." One of the last times the pair collaborated was on Rowland's "Simply Deep" track off her debut solo album of the same name. Solange also penned a few songs off the same project. Fast forward to 2016, and Rowland's vocals were featured on Solange's iconic A Seat at the Table.

Teyana Taylor To Pay Homage To Ballroom Culture In "WTP" Video

Teyana Taylor aims to keep her hot streak of innovative videos coming thanks to this recent announcement. Taking to Instagram on Wednesday (Jan. 9), the "Gonna Love Me" singer will show adoration to ballroom culture in the visual for "WTP."

Directed by Gregory "Beef" Jones, The Aunties Inc., and Taylor herself, the Harlemite takes viewers on her journey to the expression-filled space where she hopes to rack up 10s across the board from a group of judges. The premise of the video also seems to follow a mockumentary format airing on a fictional network named FEMTV. Alongside Taylor, other men and women get ready to display their talents and confidence on the ballroom floor.

"WTP" is featured on the mother-of-one's sophomore album, K.T.S.E., which was released in June 2018. While the rollout's controversy didn't entirely muddle the excitement behind the project's debut, Taylor said she was sold on the idea that her album would be treated as the biggest out of G.O.O.D. Music's string of releases last year.

"I didn't know ahead of time that there wouldn't be any singles or visuals. But I knew that it was going to be the five-album thing," she said during a HOT 97 interview. "[Kanye] wanted [my album] to be last, he wanted mine to be the biggest. That's the way they sauced it up. I was sold."

The video will debut on Jan. 19. Check out the teaser below.

Trina Braxton’s Ex-Husband, Gabe Solis, Dies After Battle With Cancer

Gabe Solis, the ex-husband of Trina Braxton, lost his battle with cancer, Thursday (Dec. 20),  TMZ reports. He was 43.

Solis passed away at his home in Texas, surrounded by friends and family, according to the outlet. No official details have been released about his passing.

Solis had reportedly been keeping his cancer battle private. His death came as a shock to his loved ones. On Friday (Dec. 21), Braxton seemingly mourned the loss of her ex-husband with a cryptic Instagram meme reading, “I need a hug..E bottle of wine.”

The former couple tied the knot in 2003, and appeared together on previous seasons of WEtv’s Braxton Family Values. Despite finalizing their divorce in 2015, Braxton and Solis confronted lingering issues from their marriage during an episode of Iyanla: Fix My Life, earlier in the year.

Braxton has since moved on to a new relationship, but remained friends with Solis.
